In 1954, four prototypes of the two-car connected EH10, Japans first H-class electric locomotive with 8-axis, were released and a total of 64 locomotives were manufactured by 1957.
The box-shaped body without a deck, the inclined front window, the two-axis bogies, etc. made the EH10 Japans state-of-the-art machine at the time. In terms of its mechanisms and performance is still had the characteristics of older electric locomotives.
One of the main features of the EH10 is its black body with yellow stripes – a unique paint scheme that was not used on other electric locomotives.
